Employer Compliance

Employer Compliance

Raleigh Immigration Law Firm

The United States immigration system is very confusing - and not just for foreign citizens who are attempting to live and work in this country. The laws concerning immigration can also prove complicated and burdensome for employers in the United States who wish to hire workers from other countries. If you do not follow the specific regulations set forth by the government, you could face serious consequences.

Helping You Maintain Compliance with Immigration Laws

Hiring Raleigh immigration attorneys to help you review your business policies or counsel you during an audit could be one of the best decisions you make during this time. At Gardner Law, PLLC, we understand the specific laws concerning employer compliance in hiring and immigration issues. These laws have changed recently, and we stay updated with these changes in order to represent our clients effectively. With a reputation for successful client advocacy and informed counsel, we are prepared to help you maintain compliance with immigration laws in order to avoid negative repercussions.

Some of the cases we handle include the following:

  • I-9 Compliance
    Every employee must fill out an Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9. We recommend taking proactive measures to ensure that your business' procedures are in line with the I-9 compliance laws in order to avoid repercussions from the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Our attorneys can help you review your company policies and, if you have received a notice of inspection from the ICE, provide the legal counsel you need before and during the audit.
  • E-Verify Audits
    The E-Verify program is an Internet auditing program that matches the information each of your employees supplied on his or her Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 with the information contained in government records. Call Gardner Law to learn more about this program or for representation before E-Verify officials.
  • Social Security and No-Match Letters
    The Social Security Administration (SSA) will send an employer a no-match letter if one of his or her employees is found to not have a Social Security number. This could signify possible ineligibility to work in the U.S. If you received a no-match letter from the SSA, contact Gardner Law to discuss how you should respond.

  • Released from ICE / Pending Work Permit Removal (Bond Motion)

    Immigrant had a prior order of removal from over 10 years ago. He was detained by ICE again and his US citizen wife hired us to try to get him out. We filed a Motion To Reopen his In Absentia Order with the immigration court in New Orleans, Louisiana.

  • Filed for I-918 U-Visa Petition U Visa Certification

  • Green Card was Granted Same-Sex, Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status

    The petition did not have any red flags but the USCIS officer interviewed them separately (Stokes Interview) and asked incredibly specific and detailed questions about their finances, work history, and friends and family.

  • Renew Existing I-765 While Pending VAWA & I-48 VAWA

    We submitted her application, received a prima facie determination, and asked for her marriage-based I-485 to be held in abeyance until the I-360 VAWA petition could be approved.

    Waver was pending for almost one year, but it was approved and we are currently working on consular processing.

  • Received Certificate of Citizenship N-600

    This LPR client came to us worried about naturalizing because she had a bad criminal record and her naturalization application would probably be denied. After a thorough review of her family history, we realized she was already a US citizen through the Child Citizenship Act.

  • Approved for Adjustment of Status Family Member Adjustment of Status Granted

    Our client wanted to apply for adjustment of status via the 245i form, based on her sister’s US Citizenship that was granted many years prior to our case.
